Now in our 102nd year – run by volunteers for the community
page last updated: 27th February 2024
New trustees needed: some of our longest serving trustees would like to retire, knowing that they have successors. Why join us? How do we work? What’s involved? Read all about it here in this interview with one of the trustees. Your village hall needs YOU!
Come along to our committee meeting on Thursday February 29th, 7pm at the hall to listen in and see what happens. The committee members are elected at our annual general meeting on Thursday 11th April.
Scam warning: unfortunately there is a facebook post going around advertising for stallholders for an alleged event at the hall on March 30/31st. There is no such event arranged, and people have lost money by paying for these non-existent stalls. We aren’t alone in being used like this. Please note: all events will appear on our online calendar, and you are most welcome to contact us to check that an event is ‘real’ – no honest organiser will mind you doing this.
regular events: Join in with yoga on Monday mornings, Pilates on Wednesday mornings, MMA for kids on Tuesday afternoon, Scottish Country Dancing on Tuesday evening plus our other regulars mindfulness, poetry, ‘meet and eat’ , Pant WI and more! Hover over the event on the calendar page for details or contact us for help.
new project: our next refurbishment plan – the toilets! Read all about it on the project page.
Hire fee is £12.50 an hour for the whole building. That includes all utilities, furniture, serving kitchen, side room, outside play area and the car park. All details on our booking page.
Frequent hirers may be eligible for discounts in accordance with our hiring policy, which can be found on this page.
We are volunteer run – help us to help you by reading the information that we provide before contacting the booking secretary. It saves a lot of time all round. Thank you.

What do we offer?
The hall is presented empty for you to set up as you like. Our furniture stores include modern padded chairs, folding tables and a fabulous set of child-size chairs and tables. The serving kitchen has lots of cutlery and crockery, plus child-friendly plates, mugs and bowls. There’s a bluetooth speaker system for your music. All you need bring is a bag for your rubbish and tea towels; we provide all the kit you need to clean up as we are a self-service hall. Hence the low hire charge!
We are covid-aware
Covid19 is still prevalent. We want to make sure that everyone feels safe when using the hall. Please do not attend if you are unwell, or if anyone in your house has something infectious – normal consideration!
The hall is spacious and airy and all the windows can be opened – fresh air is key to good health! We also provide hand sanitiser as well as good old soap and water, plus cleaning kit if you want to give anything an extra wipe down. The hall is professionally cleaned twice a week, and as always we ask hirers to leave it as they would wish to find it. Thank you.
How did we get here?
The hall is the village war memorial and contains two more – read all about our memorials and commemorations here. Founded in 1922 and so now in our second century, we value our history but we never stand still!
